Machine learning systems promise to have a lot of potential while security and privacy of such systems and robustness of their algorithms continues to be an active area of research. At Microsoft Research Cambridge we are working on scalable probabilistic generative models, transfer learning, ensemble learning and machine learning algorithms that utilize secure hardware to guarantee strong security properties such as confidentiality and integrity. We are looking for an intern to join us and work on various aspects of a machine learning system including machine learning models, mechanism design, its privacy properties and overall utility.

There is no closing deadline for this post. The post will be filled once suitable candidates are found so if you are interested please apply as soon as possible.


Work with an interdisciplinary team on real-world applications of secure machine learning by developing novel models, mechanisms, and algorithms. The candidate will make theoretical, practical and application-level contributions, and document and present findings in technical documents or papers.


  • Students enrolled in a PhD program or outstanding undergraduate/Master’s students with research experience.
  • Knowledge of machine learning models and algorithms, mechanism design and differential privacy; demonstrated proficiency through one or multiple publications at relevant venues
  • Letter of support from a supervisor and, optionally, from another senior collaborator
